The art form of Ranma is solely Japanese, dating back to the 17th century in Kyoto. Ranma is an elaborately carved wooden panel that is placed above a sliding door (障子), and beneath the ceiling in a traditional Japanese household. The woodwork can also be seen in some traditional Japanese buildings or place of worship. Although not as prominent today, you can still view ranma in many historical buildings. After its inception, ranma was used for both practical and decorative purposes. In a practical sense, ranma was used to separate rooms and provide airflow. In a decorative sense, it was used as a subtle way for a family to demonstrate its wealth.

Title  Swedish Provincial Mora long case grandfather clock original hand painted dial with top bell


Description

Antique Swedish Empire MORA grandfather clock with carved hand shaped pine long case with original well serviced and working 8 day movement. 

 

The tall case in typical provincial blonde pine waxed finish and with elegant cold climate spruce grain.

Of typical form  with drumhead top and elegant stylised pregnant belly body.

The Swedish Mora clock first appeared in Stockholm during the Gustavian Period in the mid-eighteenth century. Farmers in the Mora area wanted to look for ways to supplement their income. The villagers of Östnor, outside Mora, turned to traditional home crafts such as the making of clocks. This was essential work as the long frozen winter months restricted work to indoor activities. Each farming family specialized in a specific part: some made the brass clockworks, some painted the dials while others built or painted the cases. At the height of production more than 90 families were engaged in the trade, and Mora functioned as one large clock factory. This traditional hand made craft eventually ceased when cheaper mass production clocks from America became available from the 1840's onwards.

 

The steel and brass clock mechanism with  top mounted bell and two cast iron weights. The bell strikes the hour count.

A long brass pendulum is housed within the case. The clock face with hand painted enamel face with Roman numerals in black on white with the superb cut brass hands .

Two train movement with winding key. The door to the pendulum case with original iron hinge

The drum head shaped top with opening front door retains it original hand blown convex glass front.

 

The main body with a traditional neoclassical  shape  and hinged panel door with round window front is somtimes called the pregnant belly  as it refers to a tim eof prosperity in the family.

The shaped pine mouldings to the case in the provincial manner complete with pegged joints in 18th century tradition. .

Title Antique French gilt bronze Chandelier circa 1850 original gold gilt ormolu 15 candle holders cut crystals

 


Description

Very rare antique French gilt bronze Chandelier circa 1850 original gold gilt ormolu 15 candle holders with wax drop trays and cut crystals icicles.

The gilt ormolu with extremely high quality casting and chase work all in excellent condition featuring angels and putti with acanthus scrollwork and crowns etc.

There are two tiers of candle holder arms in the most amazing intricate scrollwork all joined by a central rod and terninating in a large gilt acorn finial at base.

 

This extremely rare example still maintains its original gilt finish - a value point.

It has been wired previously for electricity but these old clumsy fittings have been removed retunring this light to its former grace and elegance for original candle light. It is very easy to have this chandelier rewired for electric light and I would recommend it be done properly to allow for the candle sconces to be used for wax candles in the traditional manner.  The ornate skeleton frame allows for many ways to electrify this with small discretly hidden halogen or LED globes so as not to spoil the magnificance of this rare treasure.

 


French original 19th century in the 18th century Louis XV manner.

Title  Blonde Swedish Provincial Mora long case grandfather clock original hand painted dial with twin bells


Description

Antique Swedish Empire MORA grandfather clock with carved hand shaped pine long case with origninal working 8 day movement. 

The tall case in typical provincial blonde wood waxed finish and with elegant cold climate spruce grain.

Of typical form  with drumhead top but more elegant Empire tapering body.

The Swedish Mora clock first appeared in Stockholm during the Gustavian Period in the mid-eighteenth century. Farmers in the Mora area wanted to look for ways to supplement their income. The villagers of Östnor, outside Mora, turned to traditional home crafts such as the making of clocks. This was essential work as the long frozen winter months restricted work to indoor activities. Each farming family specialized in a specific part: some made the brass clockworks, some painted the dials while others built or painted the cases. At the height of production more than 90 families were engaged in the trade, and Mora functioned as one large clock factory. This traditional hand made craft eventually ceased when cheaper mass production clocks from America became available from the 1840's onwards.

 

The steel and brass clock mechanism with  top mounted twin bells and two cast iron weights. The bell strikes the hour count. A recently replaced long brass pendulum is housed within the case. The clock face with hand painted enamel face with Roman numerals in black on white with the superb cut steel hands .

Two train movement with winding key. The door to the pendulum case with original steel lock and steel key.

The drum head shaped top with opening front door retains it original hand brlown convex glass front.

The main body with a unusual neoclassical tapering pyramidic shape  and hinged panel door with round window front opens with with traditional steel key on spring lock.

The shaped pine mouldings to the case in the provincial manner complete with pegged joints in 18th century tradition. .

Title   Large French antique 1870 Gothic banquet CHANDELIER 8 light with original chain and top crown gilt brass

  Description

French antique 1870 Gothic banquet CHANDELIER 8 light with original chain and top crown in gilt brass.

 

Beautifully cast in solid brass this genuine 1870's candle chandelier has 8 candle holders and was electrified some time in the early 1900's.  

The circular crown adorned with pierced decoration and luxurious blue cabuchone mounts.

Original ornate chain suspends the chandelier the from the top crown that has a large brass ring above. The chandelier would have been raised and lowered from this ring by a long rope or chain to light the candles in the chandelier.

Your chain from the ceiling could then be taylored to your required length.

The later electric globe holders use standard small bayonette globes.

 

As with all hard wired light fittings it will be necessary for your fully licensed Australian electrician to check and certify it is safe when installing it and they will need to update the wiring to conform with current requirements as this is imported from France. Its a simple job as the fittings are already in place and wiring can run be internal.

 


French 19th century in the Gothic manner of 1450 with early 20th century electric fittings.
